  • Hidden submarine behind the science museum. Worth it for just the trip alone. Unusual to see an early Cold War sub. Very well restored and presented. Watch your head on the very small hatches
  • The USS Requin is a tench class diesel electric submarine. Like most seafaring vessels it's a tight fit through the hatches, but it's really cool inside. If you have serious mobility issues or are very overweight you'll have a tough time getting from compartment to compartment, but it's really worth the squeeze to see inside. It's a self guided walkthrough, so you can take all the time you want reading the signs and information plaques inside. There are a few compartments that you cant enter without being on the guide led tour though, like the conning tower and the sonar room
